Feeding Adult Dogs

Most adult dogs can be fed once daily. However, it may be beneficial to divide the recommended daily amounts into two meals. The food intake required to maintain ideal body condition will vary depending on age, activity and environment, and should be adjusted accordingly.


Feeding Tip

When switching your dog to Beneful Healthy Weight dog food, please allow 7 – 10 days for the transition. Gradually add more Beneful Healthy Weight and less of the previous food to your dog’s dish each day until the changeover is complete. This gradual transition will help avoid dietary upsets.

Provide adequate fresh water in a clean container daily.

For your pet’s health, see your veterinarian regularly.
